Vin Diesel Broadcasts Cryptic Message While ‘Fast 8′ Crew Takes Sides in His Rumored Feud with Dwayne Johnson
Diesel posted a video on his Instagram account on Wednesday (Aug. 10, 2016) in which he discussed the advancement of his daughter’s vocabulary that occurred while he was filming Fast 8.
“After being on set since literally Christmas, to finally, finally, finally come home and to learn that your little angel learned new word, I’m going to have to share it with you,” said Diesel. “Her new word kind of describes my spirit and my soul and most people who stay positive. The new word is ‘happy.’ When I heard her say happy I just lit up in ways that I can’t even describe.”
But he segues at a concerning speed into a dark place when he says, in an ominous voice, “I will tell you everything. Everything.“
The caption of his video notes that he “starred in and produced” his back to back pictures, Fast 8 and xXx: The Return of Xander Cage. As TMZ reports, the Fast 8 production schedule is a large part of why Diesel and Johnson are feuding. The film’s crew tells the tabloid that Diesel would wait in his trailer for 30 minutes before coming out to film on set and that he forced production to move 7 a.m. calls to 10 a.m. because he didn’t like the early start. This described unprofessional nature falls in line with Johnson’s claims from his Facebook video.
The crew says that working with Johnson is a pleasure, calling him “the ultimate professional who is always on time and always nails his scenes.” Diesel allegedly confronted Johnson in his trailer after he saw Johnson’s accusatory video, but it seems that their issues remain unresolved.
